Very Interesting Ancient House

In addition to being a multi-generational house, it's another opportunity to purchase more handicrafts...hand embroidered tablecloths/napkins.

Unless you dive into the architecture details inch by inch or meditate in front of the Chinese poems, 5-10 minutes is more than enough in this house overcrowded by tourists from time to time. Having said that, the exterior (facing the riverfront) is amazing, especially when the yellow walls are glowing at the dawn with bicycles passing by.

This is probably the house to visit if you visit only one of the old houses. Fascinating to see how the merchants along the river front used to live, although try to go off-peak as it's not large and can get crowded.

Compact but absolutely charming. Beautiful design and decoration from the building itself with internal courtyard, to the furnishings. Preserved and presented with love and care. Seven generations of a successful trading family have lived here. House is in the middle of town so make this part of your itinerary whilst you are in Hoi An. Allow 30 min - 1... More

Really interesting home to bust where the family still live. Typical Vietnamese house built around a small courtyard. Good guide who pointed out main features. Well worth a visit.

It is fantastic that so many of the historical buildings have been preserved - very difficult to choose which to visit. This was written up as being one of the best and it is very beautiful and interesting to see, but it only takes 5 minute to visit which we did right at the end of the trip. If we... More

I enjoyed this unique visit; the ticket lady noticed we were English so gladly took us around the two rooms and explained different areas to us. The house has some great architecture and a tiny shop at the exit. It is a short visit, we spent about less than half an hour here.

Beautiful Hoi An style house showing a combination of Vietnamese, Chinese and Japanese architecture. Look out for the flood level markers here.

The old house is included in the Hoi An pass. It contains a mixed heritage and provides an interesting insight into home life from a couple of centuries ago. Quite cramped inside so choose a less busy time to visit. A qualified useful.

I enjoyed visiting this ancient house. It was one of the places you could go into on the ticket you purchase for Hoi An Ancient Town. The house itself was small and there were quite a few people in there when I visited. The old furniture is interesting to look at. There was a wall where the levels of different... More
